Zentangle Diva Challenge #307 — From Hawaii and Mexico to a Blizzard Edition???

March 13, 2017 17 comments

(If Zentangle is a new concept for you, start here.) I was feeling a big smug, thinking that Mr. Excitement and I had managed to escape what I was sure would have been the worst of Philadelphia’s winter by escaping leaving for a month from January 22nd until February 21st. We started with a week in Honolulu, […]

Pacific Ocean off Honolulu, Hawaii

I have to admit, this hasn’t been a very trying winter here in the Delaware Valley (Philadelphia and environs). We’ve had only real snow of 3-5 inches and within days it was 65 degrees. Still, it’s darker and grayer, and I can feel Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)  starting to rear its ugly head. Consequently, I’m […]

Aerial view of the Diamond Head crater on Oahu, Hawaii

We live in the City of Brotherly Love (and Sisterly Affection), Rocky’s hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am positive that in this city of over 1,500,000 souls, quite a few of them have never visited our most iconic landmark, the Liberty Bell. When you live somewhere, you figure you’ll get around to visiting the important […]

Zentangle Diva Challenges ##256 and 257 – Catching Up After a Trip to Hawaii Edition

February 29, 2016 25 comments

[If Zentangle is a new concept for you, I’d suggest starting with this post, explaining the Zentangle method and copping to my Zentangle addiction.] I missed posting my response to a Zentangle Diva’s weekly challenge for the first time last week. In my defense, we were traveling in Hawaii (the islands of Maui and Oahu), […]

Mr. Excitement and I had the good fortune to be in Honolulu, Hawaii during one of the worst Philadelphia winters in years. After our month-long trip to Southeast Asia in January, in February we arrived in Honolulu on the Hawaiian island of Oahu to start Mr. Dr./Professor Excitement’s three month sabbatical at the University of […]

Pineapple Quilt at the Hawaii Quilt Guild Show

(Updated on March 27, 2015). E Ho’ononea I Ka Mili Kapa Got that? I didn’t think so. It was the theme of the 2014 quilt exhibit by The Hawaii Quilt Guild at the Honolulu Museum of Art School. The translation from Hawaiian is “Come and Be Soothed by the Quilting”. After some unpleasantness regarding my health, I was […]

Waikiki Beach from our Lanai with the Hawaiian Hilton Village's Rainbow Tower.

According to my blog publication schedule, this post is supposed to share more information about Chiang Mai, Thailand. However, if you’re a Baby Boomer, you’ve inhabited this planet long enough to know that Woody Allen had it right when he said, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.” My latest […]

Hawaii Chocolate Festival

One of the pleasures of being a travel writer/blogger is the opportunity to meet up with other travel writers/bloggers. Most recently, I found myself in Honolulu, Hawaii, at the same time as Canadian travel writer/blogger, Doreen Pendgracs. Doreen has a delicious niche. She writes about chocolate. Her quest to inform herself about this gift from the […]
